Borrowing its name from a now-defunct British trip-hop act, the Sneaker Pimps world tour has bested the band by putting on over 200 shows in 60 cities across the globe since its inception in 2003. Boasting lineups that have included over 500 of the world’s hottest street-level artists and countless performers, Sneaker Pimps is back for another go-round in a city that’s building toward a fever pitch as its most anticipated NBA season yet is about to get underway: Miami, Florida. Expect over 1500 pairs of rare, limited edition, vintage, celebrity signed and artist-collaborated kicks, not to mention the sneaker-inspired artwork guaranteed to be on display. The MIA stop is co-headlined by Wu-Tang chef, Raekwon, and local product Rick Ross, and will feature an advanced demo of the upcoming NBA Jam redux. Quite a lineup, indeed, and be sure to check back with Sneaker News for a recap early next week.
